What Should Be Done for Ailing, Abandoned and Skittish Cat?

Neighbors have been caring for the cat for years, but now it’s starting to look poorly and wants nothing to do with humans.

DEAR JOAN: Many years ago someone in the neighborhood moved and left their beautiful cat behind. Kitty has stayed put, living for years within a four-house range.

Good friends across the street took to feeding the cat twice a day and making a sheltered, warm bed in a corner of their front porch. The cat has never allowed anyone to come close and is beginning to look very ragged, has obvious hearing problems and this morning I noticed kitty seemed disoriented.

What do you recommend we do, if anything? If the cat is dying of old age, I worry about kidney failure or that the cat will be in pain. Should there be any intervention? Capturing the cat would be a traumatic experience.
